An Invisible Alternative to Metallic Braces
You can have a beautiful smile without the metallic look. Invisalign treatment offers patients an alternative to conventional metal braces they can be embarrassed by. This treatment uses clear, custom fitted trays to straighten your teeth and gradually moves them into the desired position. The average treatment time is six months to one year. Invisalign uses custom-made aligners to shift your teeth gradually into place. The aligners’ specifications are calculated by your dentist and are then individually manufactured to suit your active lifestyle. The Invisalign treatment can be viewed on the computer to make modifications if necessary, so you can sit with the dentist and design your smile, review the projected smile, and finally make an educated decision.
Invisalign effortlessly transforms your appearance and your smile without affecting your appearance and speech. Your new smile is just a phone call away. Call to make an appointment today!
Invisalign Treatment – The Advantages of This Modern Approach
Invisalign scores over other traditional methods of teeth straightening in the following ways:
- An Invisalign teeth straightening is difficult to detect as compared to dental braces. Hence appearance and speech are not affected while in treatment.
- Patient’s lifestyle is not affected.
- Unlike dental braces, the aligners are removable.
- There is no restriction on the type of food you eat.
- Aligners do not affect your gums and supporting tissues.
- The chances of patient getting decay are almost negligible.
You can now be without braces and still get straighter teeth!
How the Invisalign Treatment Works to Give You Great Results
During the initial consultation, the dentist will discuss your needs in detail and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. Patients can have all their queries and questions concerning dental treatments explained in detail during the consultation.
The dentist will take the impressions of your teeth along with photographs and x-rays. These x-rays and impressions are then sent to Align Dental Technology, the makers of Invisalign. Once it is processed at their labs and the movement of teeth over the treatment period is predicted, aligners for each stage of the treatment are shipped to your Invisalign dentist.
You can only remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they are straightened to the final position that you and your dentist have visualized.
This is to ensure that your Invisalign dental treatment is progressing as planned. The total Invisalign treatment time averages around 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during Invisalign teeth straightening are between 18 and 30, but both vary from case to case.
